It is a beautiful hotel. Rooms and hallways are lovely. Staff is super friendly!, Rooms are lovely and very large. The beds are too soft for me and I wished I had brought my own pillow. Rooms are noisy. Feels like everyone talking in the hallway is in your room. Love the pool. Food at the pool is average. There... More

Excellent hotel and spa! We had a room and a suite. They are very nice and spacious. It was a girl's weekend so we really enjoyed the spa and pool. The dealers in the casino were awesome! They also have great concerts there.

The first thing that hits you about this place is how smokey and dirty it is. Second, it is poorly maintained and simple things like doors are in need of maintenance. It is a bare bones, nothing special, out in the middle of what used to be a cornfield casino. It's not pleasant to be there.

My husband, sister, and I spent a Friday/Saturday night here and really had a good time. The rooms are very nice with coffee pot and small fridge. Bathroom and shower are huge. We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor pool area each day. The outdoor area has a wide variety of seating/lounging options with a view of the golf course. My husband enjoyed... More

This was our first stay at Riverside. We had plans to stay at different Casino & Resort but they were booked up. We discovered Riverside accepted hotel vouchers from other Casinos. The room was large and very clean. We enjoyed our two free nights there. We will plan to return to Riverside soon.

This place is a fantastic value. Located just 15 minutes away from Iowa City it is a luxurious oasis. Take a visit to the spa! If you join their rewards program they often send out vouchers to redeem for cheap rooms!

We paid $129 when others in line were paying $50 even though we told them we were there to gamble. Casino points are only kept three months. Buffet was average. When ask... More

We have stayed many times. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern. The golf course is one of the best in the state. The casino is pretty small, and if you want table games the selection is ridiculously limited. The buffet is average at best but the cafe is pretty good option. We keep coming back because its anice little... More
